The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Vans 40 year timeline!

This isn’t a ‘sneaker post’ I just love Vans. Basically just the classics, the new stuff is too techy for me. I just remember being younger and rocking them for skating…the sides would blow out so quick. I remember all my socks had holes in the ollie area. But yeah, talk about a brand with heritage…surfing, the whole Zephyr boys setup, first shoe mfg to be direct to the buyer…they did crazy customs back in the day, you could bring in whatever fabric and they would make the shoe from it…I love that. So yeah, check this 40 year timeline piece they just launched, quite nice. Everything is back to simplicity these days right? And maybe even a hint of sustainability. Still one of the only shoes that look better scuffed up.
